One Thought: Can’t Stop Eating This.
This was my first time making a chia seed pudding, and, now, I’m addicted. Paleo. Dairy-free. Gluten-free. I don’t care what diet or non-diet you’re on; chia pudding is a must try for everyone! And it’s unbelievably easy. You can make a big batch, like I did, and have it all week long. It’s my new weekday, Lazy Girl’s power breakfast! The chocolate collagen powder adds an amazing, rich and chocolatey flavor plus helps promote healthy hair, skin and nails and also improves gut health.
This version blends high-quality collagen powder with honey and peanut (or any nut) butter and unsweetened almond milk. It’s topped with bananas and strawberries, but you can add whatever toppings you dream up.
Further Food Commentary:
Chia seed puddings are nutritional powerhouses, and when combined with nuts and cocoa powder, you have a snack full of antioxidants and healthy fats that will keep you feeling full for hours thanks to the fiber and protein. The high soluble fiber content of chia seeds and the insoluble fiber from the peanuts provide cholesterol lowering properties and help control blood sugar levels. This chia pudding is a great snack for anyone, particularly diabetics, and the sugar content can be decreased by simply leaving out the honey.
However, If you cannot tolerate snacks and/or meals with a high fat content, then you may want to avoid eating chia puddings as it may cause gastrointestinal distress.
